How does smart city governance effectively deliver the key requirements of policy makers to operationalise sustainability and drive the transition to carbon neutral cities? In what way can these requirements ensure plans are co-created with city stakeholders, and based on integrated assessments to ensure effective delivery of interconnected strategic policy objectives? Will this new governance overcome silo thinking to identify policy co-benefits and “win-win” solutions as the principal outcome? And to what extent can the smart city governance solutions be applied to all cities using common tools and methodologies, defining a sustainable business model?
The session seeks to address these and other questions in a roundtable format from presenters identified below. Discussion draws on findings and experience of EU funded (FP7 and Horizon 2020, and Copernicus Programme) open smart city governance research and innovation projects, as well as the integration potentials identified with the Nexus projects of the Sustainable Urban Global Initiative (SUGI) and transition pathways analysis of JPI Urban Europe. All support the development of open governance solutions for urban planning in collaboration with pan-European partner cities
